Manon -- that name alone is enough to evoke one of the greatest love stories in European Literature, the passion that sweeps a young man of promise off his feet and makes him defy every social convention of his class and flout the laws of God and man for the sake of a girl whose fascination enslaves him. This is no tale of a gradually unfolding love; instead, the novel presents one of the abiding myths of our culture, the sudden enchantment with which woman breaks down man's defences of reason and sense and triumphs over conscience.
The Wandering Scholars
A study of the Goliards, itinerant Latin lyricists of the 12th and 13th centuries
More Latin Lyrics, from Virgil to Milton
On facing pages in Latin and English, most of the poems in this anthology were written between the first century A.D. and the thirteenth century. They were chosen by the translator during the dark days of World War II, and many reflect ageless themes, affirming the values of civilization, values that have endured through war and tumult in centuries past. Each poetâs work is prefaced by an editorial note, followed by a passage from Helen Waddellâs own published writings.
